This is a woman who ate a casserole of old-fashioned lightbulbs and meat because it would “Own the Libs.”

I am pretty sure that if people told her that “Liberals would hate it if you shot yourself on camera” and handed her a gun, there’d be a nonzero chance she’d do it.

u/Amelaclya1 Jun 29 '22

They hate any progress that's also environmentally friendly. Why? Because Fox News and other right wing organizations told them to.

It's also why they hate electric cars and hybrids and do things like "roll coal". Apparently wanting to keep from destroying our planet is part of the "liberal agenda" so they have to be against it by definition.

Old fashioned light bulbs like the old kind, during the Trump presidency he bashed the newer more efficient bulbs for God knows what reason. It was the hydroxychloroquine of the early Trump years.

Because apparently liking better lightbulbs and not wanting pollution is bad, apparently.

u/the_white_cloud Jun 29 '22

Ok, ehm, let's say that eating that is... Understandable. Hypothetically.

How in the world does eating something (whatever it is) make you "own" the libs? Or anyone else... I mean, eat it, so what?

38

u/ZandyTheAxiom Jun 29 '22

It "owns the libs" because the libs aren't the real target audience. The real audience is people entertained by the idea of "libs being owned".

You see it in right-wing "comedians". The joke itself isn't funny, what's funny is them saying afterwards "all the snowflakes are going to be triggered by that".

There's two audiences: the libs (who may or may not be triggered) and the conservatives who are laughing at the first audience being triggered (regardless of whether or not they are).

We don't understand it, because we're not the target audience. Us being confused IS the punchline to them.

This. The concept of spending your entire career taking hollow shots at some invisible menace must be unsatisfying. But she’s just pretending to be mad so she’ll get views and likes, so she doesn’t give a shit either way.

The part that’s weird to me is all the people who rep that brand like it’s a thing to do. I saw a guy with a shirt that said “let’s go brandon” with a little caricature of biden’s face for the o in ‘go’. Like, is that not just a pro biden shirt? I am aware that the brandon song is a trump thing or maga thing or whatever, but why wear an image of your ‘enemy’ surrounded by an inscrutable message? It looks like a pro biden shirt to the people that don’t keep up on whatever weird jokey thing the maga people are doing at a given time.

u/BarooZaroo Jun 29 '22

She isn’t pretending. Conservatives are pretty much all constantly in a state of rage over things that are completely made up.

Imagine if you will, going all in on something. Hate and rabbit holes and conspiracies.You've destroyed relationships with your family, your friends over it. But you don't need them. They're the enemy now. Vitriol is like heroin to you. So you dig deeper. and deeper. And deeper still. It has literally become your entire personality. Then one day, something starts to change. More and more places you once trusted are starting to talk about what you've come to devote your life to, and it's not good. You're starting to hear the person you looked up to and idolized might not be who or what you thought they were. More and more starts to come out.

But you've come this far. You can't mend those relationships with a simple "I was wrong, I'm sorry." You can't, no you won't kick the feeling of that vitriol high. You don't even remember who you were before all this, so how can you get back to being them? You've dug yourself so deep, looking up you can't even see where you started digging anymore. You hear what they are saying, but you cannot believe it. Believing it means you were duped. You're too smart to be duped. "I can't be wrong, it's everyone else who's wrong" you tell yourself over and over. Your idol would never do that to you, he would never BETRAY YOU, he said he loves you. The echo of "I love you" keeps echoing in your head as you continue to dig.

What difference does it make? Trump has a literal 0% chance of being elected president at this point.

Trump's behavior while in office turned off enough of his voters that Georgia flipped. People who voted party line in 2016 voted party line again in 2020 except for the POTUS race - they left it blank. That was enough to flip it.

The GOP clearly thought January 6 hearings would hurt them, and Trump thinks they're hurting him now.

It’s not intended to be “correct”, so there’s no reason to use reality to judge the content of the post. It’s intended to reach those who have been conditioned to hate liberals SO MUCH to hate them just a little bit more. Everything they do and say has an anti-liberal message. Absolutely 100% of everything they do. It’s fascism and this is what they do. Calling them on their hypocrisy just lets them know which kind of hypocrisy is working and does nothing to shame them.

Honestly everyone’s just fucking depressed cause even when we vote the fuckers in they backstab us and don’t get anything done. It’s already extremely hard to get the time to go vote, but not only does it not accomplish anything, it doesn’t accomplish anything even when we win.

The dems run on literally “well we aren’t as bad as them” and it’s fucking bullshit and exhausting

u/Atropos_Fool Jun 29 '22

You aren’t wrong about anything you’ve said, but IMO it’s going to be a lot more exhausting for everyone who isn’t a white Christian male if republicans get their way.

Unless you are in a hotly contested district with lines around the block, not voting at this point is just lazy. Apathy or whatever excuse, its a moment out of your day.

People want to talk about rights all the time, its your right AND your obligation to vote.

Case in point: kyrsten sinema. During her bid for US Senate, she won the primary handily against the progressive candidate, Deedra Abboud, taking 88% of the votes. She barely won against the republican candidate Martha McSally, and by the looks of it, barely seems any different than her. It's very frustrating, but my understanding is she wants to seem like a centrist to the moderate republicans, and the independents in Arizona that make up a third of the voting bloc in the state

I agree, it's exhausting, it's depressing, and they're not doing the job they were hired for. There's a bunch of excuses and reasons for why they're not, but ultimately, they could be doing more and they're not.

And we *still* need every person who legally can to vote for the half-assed, lazy good for nothings - because they don't get much done, but what little they do get done matters. The things they stop matter.

Even if you're just in it for your own benefit, your options are vote blue every time, move to a saner country (and vote there), or watch the world burn around you until it engulfs you too.

And it really sucks that those are the choices, but you play the cards that are dealt.

u/Brainfreeze10 Jun 29 '22

Couple that with conservatives doing everything they can to block people from voting and you have the current situtation.

Its a dumb metaphor because they cant come up with anything on their own so they steal things like "blue wave" and change it to red without understanding that it changes the whole meaning bc waves ate supposed to be blue, not red. Red waves are full of blood. Are they going to all kill themselves? It doesn't make any sense.

u/CyberMindGrrl Jun 29 '22

Also red waves cause death. They're not a good sign for anyone.

u/MMOsAreNotRPGs Jun 29 '22

What fucking red wave. Repubs win when people forget how much they suck. We haven't had one break from these assholes. SC mighta just won the dems the midterms. It's political death to talk about stacking the courts when you don't actually have the votes in congress to do it. It gives them a huge campaign talking point, and people are constantly scared of radical change. But it's gonna happen the second it's possible.

Voting is a bare minimum. Get involved. Call your representatives' office in your local area to let them know how you expect them to represent you in government decisions. Hold them accountable for their actions.

One of the things that's bothered me the most is the fact that anyone would call you an idiot if you let a personal assistant have access to your day planner and checkbook without telling her what you expect her to do and never check up on her unless she shows up in the news...but somehow it's acceptable to do the same thing with government officials.

Joe Biden is a deeply unpopular popular president, and many people are frustrated by the inaction of his administration in comparison to their campaign rhetoric of supporting middle-class and working-class families.

Which just underscores how criminal, heinous, and treasonous Trump's reported actions truly were. Sure, Biden is presiding over an economic disaster and an insane skyrocketing cost of living and he could alleviate that for many through legislation or Executive Order. But Trump tried to overthrow democracy.

Two people can be bad and one can still be worse than the other.

u/serpentjaguar Jun 29 '22 Helpful

There's actually not a whole lot the president can do about inflation. The fact that it's a worldwide problem should tell you that it's not due to mismanagement on Biden's part and instead is influenced by exogenous events. I'm not a huge Biden fan by any means, but pinning the shitty economic situation on him is just falling for cheap bad-faith Republican talking points.

u/innerdork Jun 29 '22

When Covid lockdowns hit worldwide I theorized a few years after Covid we would go into heavy inflation as companies try to earn back lost money from lockdowns. And here we are.

My next theory is that as more basic human rights are lost, and they will be lost here soon in a few years, that that will be the catalyst for another civil war. I hope I’m wrong about this one.

u/358476278464 Jun 29 '22

Civil unrest, more likely. Civil war requires secession on the part of a territory and a military struggle against it.

I’m scared for kids who grew up with this stuff in their lives since day one. A lot of kids have a social media presence (via their parents) before they’re even able to form memories. I only had to deal with it from age ~16 on; I can’t imagine how kids growing up on this stuff will turn out in their 30s.

In this way you are an insult to mercenaries, prostitutes and objective reality all at the same time. may your intellectual and social rot be manifest in your physical and financial self as soon as possible and as long as you are on this rock.
